“The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
I feel like a lot of people don’t realize this. It’s not even just how I “feel” but what I observe. Happiness IS so temporary. Money, material possessions, superficiality…. what happens when all of that goes away? Knowing what you love, what you want – that’s a big deal. Love, family, friends – that’s what’s important. Dreams and goals… going for them, THAT is true sunshine in life. So many people wander aimlessly through their lives thinking they’re living the dream, but in truth it’s just a temporary thing. A facade. As I grow older, I realize that I don’t need all that extra BS in my life. Doing what I love, being with who I love and loving myself is the most important thing – never forget that and you will be the happiest person, truly.
